Homemade DAIRY FREE Sweetened Condensed Milk

Good day, loves! Today, I am sharing with you a recipe that will save your life if you don't eat DAIRY. Whatever the reason - food allergy, nursing momma, health choice, taste preference - some of us cool peeps just can't eat dairy. I have a food intolerance to dairy, so I can cheat sometimes, but really I should be "eating good" and sticking to my non-dairy diet. The recipe I have for you today is for Dairy Free Sweetened Condensed Milk. As a once-dairy-eater turned non-dairy-eater, I know that sweetened condensed milk is in SO MANY delicious, divine desserts. Up until this past week, I passed on them ALL, but now I can make any of them! This recipe definitely needs to go in your back pocket, because a whole new world of desserts has just been opened up to you. You're welcome. ;) Best part of all? There are only TWO ingredients. Goodbye canned sugary milk - hello sweet, velvety, silky goodness.

  4. It can be hard when one family member has a special diet. I don't eat dairy and my husband eats low carb, so it's always an adventure when dinner time comes around. I'm happy there are so many websites to find great recipes, though!

  5. I wish I saw this last night. My daughter wanted to make truffles with condensed milk and I have these ingredients. Definitely pinning. Thanks.

  6. Instead of reducing for so long, can't you put the can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight then just pour off the coconut water (and drink it!) leaving the fat all solidified at the top?

  7. Mmmmm truffles sound delish. I am so excited to try out all the recipes I've been missing out on, too. Hopefully your daughter can make some now. Thanks for pinning! xo

  8. That does sound yummy - coconut water! But you need the entire can. It isn't supposed to be solidified. Even though the liquid reduces, it doesn't reduce to the thickness of the coconut fat. You need it more like the consistency of a regular can of sweetened condensed milk, so that it can soak into the graham cracker crumbs to help hold it together. Does that make sense? Ha ha, hopefully. But if you try it that way and it works, let me know! xo

  14. Hi Emily! I would love to know if you like this recipe. I've only used it for my Dairy Free Magic Cookie Bars, but as a sweetener for anything, I'm sure it's great. With that hint of coconut - it is seriously delish. Hope you have a great week! xo

  15. Dairy free can be hard, but fortunately there are so many alternatives these days, I don't really miss too many dairy free things {except Frosty's and peanut butter m&m's!}. Thanks for pinning, Tammy. I love your link parties! xo

  19. Oh no - I hate being sick from dairy! Blah. Secret? I ate ravioli tonight and was sick to my stomach. But - it was worth it. :) Ha ha. But I'm glad there are dairy free alternatives so we can still eat YUMMY foods and not be sick. Take care, Hannah! xo
